Poet's Notes

I have always felt, down deep, that the Lord had another purpose for me besides being a wife and mother. You know,it's just a feeling that is always present inside of you. The words came to me in the middle of the night. I had to get up and write them down so I wouldn't lose them. God has His own way of letting us know what His plans are for us.

Your Call

As I stand upon this mountain,Lord, I pray to do your will, You've called me to your purpose, And my answer I'll not fear. I don't know about tomorrow, But I know that you'll be near. As I stand upon this mountain,Lord, I hear your call so clear. Lord,I feel so unworthy, To do my Fathers will, And I've failed you so often, Then I think of Calvary's hill. I gave my heart and soul to you, I proclaim to always be true. As I stand upon this mountain,Lord, The only view I see is you. The view from this mountain,Lord, Your hand hath made, As I answer your call, I will not be afraid. For I seek not for gain , But to ease your peoples pain, And I know this path is true,Lord, Because this call was made by you.
